Crash Dump Analysis

On Mon 2/6/2012 21:09:54 GMT your computer crashed
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\020612-13618-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: win32k.sys (win32k+0x280AD7)
Bugcheck code: 0x3B (0xC0000005, 0xFFFFF960002A0AD7, 0xFFFFF88009B40FE0, 0x0)
file path: C:\Windows\system32\win32k.sys
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: Multi-User Win32 Driver
Bug check description: This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.


1 crash dumps have been found and analyzed.
Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

Any advice how to fix that? And the reason for the blue screen? Thanks in advance.

Are you using a file cleaner (CCleaner, Windows disk cleaner, etc) of any type? These can delete .dmp files if used after a crash occurs. Please refrain from doing any temporary file cleaning until after we have resolved your crashes.

Also, make sure your minidumps are set up properly by following OPTION ONE 6. in Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Yes, I use ccleaner, after crash. Sorry, but I see for first time BSOD under Windows 7 and don't know what to do.

I imagine it was CCleaner that deleted the files. If you have only had one crash, I wouldn't worry about it. If they start to occur more often, then there is reason to be concerned. Just run normally for a few days and post back if you have any stability problems.
